Salt Dough Ornaments

I was asked about our Christmas ornaments (that will be decorated today) that we made last week from the Crayola Air Dry Clay.

I purchased it from: Amazon . . . click on Amazon and it will take you to the product.

I also found this recipe that would be easy to do at home and the kids can still roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to make the decorations.

Baked Salt Dough Ornaments

Do not eat the "cookies", which taste REALLY bad.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water

Mix ingredients together and knead. 

Roll out flat and stamp with cookie cutters. 

I use a straw to poke the hole in the ornament while before the dough is baked or dried.

Place on an ungreased sheet and bake for 2 hours at 250 degrees (F). You could let them just dry out like play dough but that would take too long.

After the ornaments are finished cooling lay out paints and brushes and give the kids painting shirts. OR use glue and glitter OR markers . . . whatever you choose, Have fun! 

Oh, and parchment, wax or butcher or newspaper would also be a pretty good idea!
